The Chronicles of Bygone Biker Sagas

Brucie hooked me up with some biker history books. Many spells here to memorize...

Splitting the Case

Did some more work. Got the motor out and split the cases. Still waiting on some bushings, jugs, pistons, etc.

Bruce was working on some customers' bikes.

The Man! Thanks for all the help buddy!

A lot of cool stuff winds up in here. It's kind of like motorcycle Valhalla.

Odyssey of the Green Machine


This was Easter morning. Broke down in front of Buck Hill. Trailered it back to Bruce's.

Took it apart and the front piston was cracked. The rings were totally cracked and loose too.

No worries, parts are on the way.

Also found the source of all that exhaust smoke...

When I looked in the rear cylinder the wall was scored up in a deep U-shape. Turns out one of the wrist pin circlips had come loose and so the wrist pin was rubbing against the side wall. Prolly have to go with a new jug for that since it's already bored 20 over.
